@colinwalker I must admit that I missed Facebook during the early days after my knee injury laid me low. There are a good number of folks there that I care about and who care about me, and it would have been nice to be in touch when I couldn't do anything else but stay put and heal. The good folks on Micro.blog did do their part cheering me up, with a much better signal-to-noise ratio.
